Asked by Mar 02, 2013 at 02:58 AM about the 2002 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought this beauty and it has been neglected. Just finished a complete transmission (gm)
rebuild, motor sounds good, brakes need work, started to get a significant miss when I filled the gas
tank. I plan on new valve cove rgasket, plugs, boots, break pads, fuel filter, rear diff fluid change,
rear left window regulator rebuild. Also cheap source for a new top?
Any other words of wisdom on this model?
